Question about the stimulus check being mailed

Has anyone received their stimulus check in the mail yet? When I check the status on the IRS site, it says payment is scheduled to be mailed on January 6, 2021. Does that even mean it was mailed? How long does it take to receive it? If I remember correctly last time we got it a few days after it was mailed. Nothing yet.

I have not received a check yet. I did receive the debit card last time.

Ours was direct deposited on the 4th.  Wouldn't trust the mails.

Yes, I received it on 1/2 and the date on the check was 1/6.


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

I received my check yesterday 1/11--have no idea when it was mailed.

Hope you receive yours soon.

Re: Question about the stimulus check being mailed

Mine said sent the 6th still waiting.  same thing happened the first time we're at the back of the bus as usual.

 

Guess we better hope the mails aren't like they was 2-3 weeks ago or by the time we get it be to old to spend it.

 

somebody mailed me something from Ind on Dec. 7th I got it Jan 8th

 

maybe they're being sent 'book rate' and by mail innovations. ROFL

Why they just couldn't put mine in our direct deposit is beyond me now

I have to watch for it for going on a week.

They don't give us a choice, unfortunately.
